    A new era for Drupal begins with Drupal 8

    As was mentioned earlier this week, today is the day Drupal 8 becomes official and is released for public consumption. The last time CMS Report was given the opportunity to talk about a major Drupal release was in January 2011 with the release of Drupal 7. If you thought the three year waiting period from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 was long, waiting nearly half a decade for Drupal 8 certainly feels like a lifetime in the world of content management. During this cycle of development, Drupal's own open source community has evolved and its developers have introduced hundreds of changes into the Drupal content management platform.

    I admit it. When looking at the calendar my eyes have been focused on November 19, 2015. This is the date that Drupal 8, under development since 2011, is expected to be released. But for Drupal 6 users, the beginning of Drupal 8 also marks the beginning of the end for Drupal 6 support.

  • Mailbag: TERMINALFOUR announces V8.1 and impact on higher education

    Mailbag: TERMINALFOUR announces V8.1 and impact on higher education

    Within the past couple days, I've received emails and phone calls from TERMINALFOUR's marketing best encouraging me to cover the company's latest news. The announcement concerns new software from TERMINALFOUR, which the company believes will help universities drive students to register to attend through better online engagement. The company already works with leading universities across the United States including the University of Florida, Texas Woman’s University and Central Wyoming College.

    I've included TERMINALFOUR's announcement below. TERMINALFOUR has incorporated a ‘Form Builder’ and automated migration tool into v8.1 to help increase engagement. The company's past experience in working with universities have shown  the migration tool allows site administrators to automatically migrate up to 93% of their content. That's an impressive number as anyone that has ever worked on a migration project well knows. I've worked on some projects where the automation was "zero" due to the joys of an in-house customized CMS. It's one of the reasons I recommend CMSs like TERMINALFOUR instead of letting your IT shop build their own CMS.
